Purely inspired by the spirit and drive of the contemporary woman, this exhibition springs forth from Max Sir’s Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz PROJECT. In a playful and thoughtful gesture, this show takes each of the voices of the multifaceted intellectual Latin American Sor Juana to represent the spirit and dynamism of the contemporary woman. Each of the paintings pays tribute to the fiery, intelligent and powerful femininity of women intellectual figures as shapers of Latin American cultural idiosyncrasies.
The IDB Staff Association Art Gallery presents The Voices of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, a solo exhibition by Chilean artist, photographer, theater director and playwright Max Sir.
Born in Viña del Mar, Chile, Sir has studied Visual Arts, Theater, Architecture, Arts Management, Law, and Pedagogy. Within the pictorial language, he has explored different techniques and materials. His artistic quality has earned him numerous first prizes in national competitions. The artist has directed theater companies, arts-integrated groups, and a school of fine arts. Later on, in a process of inner search, he retired to the extreme south of the world to meditate for six years. Upon his return, the artist traveled through the great capitals of the world studying their culture and producing new artistic projects, among them stands out Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz PROJECT.
